Speaking of friends, Laurie Excell and Randy Van Duinen are featured in the Paradise Lost/Paradise Found and Disappearing Florida exhibit at Morean Arts Center in St. Petersburg, Florida. The exhibit will be up from January 14 – March 13, but you can catch Randy in person at the opening tomorrow night. Then Laurie will be giving a presentation called Shooting From The Heart on February 24.

Matthew Hall recently posted his thoughts on Scott’s Lightroom 3 Book for Digital Photographers. Coming from someone who used to be a teacher himself, I think it’s helpful to see the book from his point of view.

And last but not least, former guest blogger Drew Gardner has a new series of videos called Behind The Photos available for purchase on his website.  In this series, he walks you through the setup and execution for his photos.  He was kind enough to send one of them to share here on the blog so you can get a sample of what each video is like (there’s a short ad at the beginning):

That’s it for this post, but make sure you also check out the next one for one last bit of news :)
